in display size you put 3.7 and 3.65 it should be 4.7 and 4.65

I still don't understand why samsung didn't put the sgs2's camera sensor in the nexus. Then again the nexus besides the screen and OS was pretty lackluster. Especially in processor. an OMAP4460 over the exynos 4210 wasn't a great idea at all.

Google partnered with them for the device to promote the new android OS sure, but if they are the ones who actually chose the parts google isn't exactly great at it. The exynos was superior than the omap in every way

They probably went for initial compatibility and I wouldn't find it surprising that the exynos and androdi 4.0 had issues at first when it came to software/hardware integration. Or it could be something dealing with the fact that the Exynos was a galaxy S flagship chipset and samsung wanted to keep it that way.

except that it didn't support LTE. the 4460 is really not that far behind the Exynos 4210 if it is at all. my Droid Razr with it's 4430 gets 6200 on Antutu @ 1.2GHz and 3000 on Quadrant @ 1.2GHz. i don't understand why PA's Galaxy Nexus review units are always scoring so low.

Good point King on the LTE, but i typically get 8000 on antutu and 400 on quadrant with my e4gt.

the only way you're getting 8000 on Antutu with a Galaxy S II is if you're overclocked by like .3GHZ. your Quadrant is also abnormally high but not by much actually. i don't really put a lot of weight behind Quadrant scores anymore especially when it comes to a Samsung.

the I/O scores are pretty screwed up and i am over clocked by maybe 100mhz i haven't checked lately. I don't really OC much, last time i OC'd i went to 1.8ghz and battery life was horrible

yeah, with phones as powerful as ours going DOWN in voltage is probably the best course. xD
i underclocked mine to 1GHz but i didn't notice enough of a change in battery life to really justify it.

After i flashed starburst ROM over though and reoverclocked it, it was stable and had excellent battery life.

Another review of a One series device where it's highly recommended based on design and camera, yet no mention of the crippled multitasking. I just took my One X back to AT&T. The worthless multitasking, combined with the exchange e-mail delay made it totally unusable for me. And I bought it because reviews like this said it was the greatest device ever.
I know you guys are under pressure to get these reviews out soon, but do us all a favor and actually use the devices for a few days before you do. The multitasking issue would have been painfully obvious, if you had.
And even if you don't think it's an "issue". Even if you buy into HTC's "feature" explanation, it's still worth mentioning, every bit as much as the antenna issue was worth mentioning on iPhone 4.

Wow. Downvoted 3 times for that? Was that post too articulate and substantive for you? Or is it that the truth just hurts?

I gotcha back hulk. That was a severe impairment they left out of the review. I think the PA writers have a bad habit of getting caught up in the hype when they're supposed to be objective.

Wow. You got downvoted, too. Someone has anger issues.

I had a htc sensation N got bored of the design real fast and people who I have talk to that use to be a htc fan say the same thing, now they own a Samsung phone, and it shows in the declining htc sales.

i got a Wildifre S and i am NEVER bored of its cheerful, cute and iconic design. i know how you feel....- i called my friend's Sensation XE's design boring as the choice of colours is just. Dull black..... or dull dark grey. Try putting on a lime green case on your Sensation and it would look better and much more eye pleasing!

I liked this reviewer better than Ray S. Short, sweet, and to the point. Good review

Is this Evo 4g lte the EXACT same phone as the One X? If so, why all the hype? It's just Sprints' version. It's not a new phone. If it is different, I retract that previous statement ;)

It's a One X with a memory card slot, a bigger battery, and a kickstand.
Still, it's stuck on Sprint's 3G network for now and it's prone to all the same issues the One X has, since it has the same hardware and software.
That means broken multitasking, sms notification issues, and e-mail push issues, none of which ever seems to get mentioned in any review.

why did this phone score so low? it is made of metal, very thin, only 4g heavier than the one x, kickstand, replaceable controversial backplate, micro sd slot and great connectivity. also the s4 beat the tegra 3 in many benchmarks and most apps will be optimized for dual not quad.

HTC EVO 4G LTE Wins HANDSDOWN! Can a Galaxy nexus with an already good 2000 quadrant standard win a HTC Evo 4G lte with an awesome 5459 quadrant standard? (Thats more than a Galaxy note's quadrant standard!) HTC WINS!

Believe it or not, a quadrant score isn't the only determining factor in a device's performance.

HTC Sense UI has had a bad stigma since it was TouchFlo (which was horrible). I think the purists will always slam on HTC for the sense interface. Having flashed multiple AOSP and Sence roms on HTC devices, I can honestly say it's a mater choice. I've enjoyed the E4GT, and the Evo 3D (I'm not saying they're comparable). Both are so different, it's really like apples and oranges. I think the real issue is Sprint getting that LTE network up as fast as it can!
